Sorry for the loss of your mother and father. They were both wonderful people. I was a good friend of your brother Jon and your parents always welcomed me in their home. Your dad was one of the best anesthesiologists Jameson Hospital ever had. I worked in the OR at Jameson but unfortunately, your dad retired before I got there. Both your parents were so good to me. May God comfort you during this difficult time.
